Interestingly, Modi, in an interview on Thursday, had said that he was ready to lose the elections but wouldn't indulge in divisive politics.
"We don't directly indulge in violence. When things aren't done right we have to step in... of course we will take law into our own hands... go and ask the people if what we are doing is wrong... we have to set things right when needed," Thackeray said in the TV interview.
"Our politics will not change, we will be the same and violence will be used where required. What right do outsiders have if Maharashtrians are not getting jobs here?" he asked, saying his party did not depend on North Indian votes as a majority of the electorate are Maharashtrians.
Not Gujarat, Maharashtra is No.1
Raj said that Maharashtra was the No.1 state in the nation, not Gujarat. However, he admitted that Maharashtra is hit by the problem of 'misgovernance'.
"I want to set Maharashtra right... I don't want Gujarat model, many parts of the country have moved ahead, we will implement those policies too."
